RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Join the Ridgefield Discovery Center as it explores the universe during a Sept. 7 program.

The 8 p.m. event will be at the New Pond Farm Observatory, 101 Marchant Road, West Redding. It's $4 for members and $6 for non-members. All ages are welcome.

The program will point out some major points of interest in the summertime night sky. A prominent feature is the three stars of the "Summer Triangle" -- Vega, Altair and Deneb, which are in separate constellations, Cyprus the Swan, Aquila the Eagle and Lyra, respectively.

A hero, dragon, dolphin and of course a couple of bears are up there too. Saturn and its moons is another show stopper along with Venus. Come learn about some of the nightly mysteries that are always right above our heads.
